At the same time the material is placed on nutrient medium. When bacterial growth is the formation of specific colonies, and at the same time is determined by the sensitivity test of pathogenic bacteria to antibiotics.
The results of laboratory studies gynecologist receives a report on the composition of the microflora of the vagina, on the state of epithelial cells, the number of pathogenic microorganisms. The increase in the number of white blood cells indicates the presence of acute inflammatory process.
